A collaboration with Fess Parker and Saarloos & Sons

The "wineification" of beer has been a constant topic of discussion these days, so why not just take a step further and blend the two? We took our Black Tuesday Imperial Stout and fermented it along with late harvest Syrah grapes from the vineyards of Los Olivos, from our good friends at both Fess Parker and Saarloos & Sons. We then aged this wine/beer hybrid in French Oak barrels, waiting for the perfect time to bottle it up. The flavor profile is remarkable. Notes of black cherry, vanilla, cinnamon, oak, aged balsamic, port wine and a sherry-like oxidation from the barrels. This beer is like nothing that you have ever tried before.

750ml bottle. This is just pure diabetes with a curranty balsamic character. Literally its soy sauce mixed with balsamic vinegar. If that sounds good to you, check this out. Oh did i mention the heavy booziness?

Bottle: Thanks, Mike! Very deep color, basically black with a slight indigo & brown tint near the top. Tan, leathery & indigo tinted head on tap that fades out quickly. Aroma is like a berry cordial dessert. Dense chocolate & fudge underbody with an overture of rich berry jam, red grapes, & a HUGE Pinot Noir vinous character. Raspberry. Chocolate. Flavor is loaded with grape jam & raspberry marmalade mashed into a Black Tuesday. Toned down sweetness with a mild vinous character cutting it. Red grape, booze, roast, mild chocolate, & a decent amount of oak. Grape jam & chocolate drizzle finish with a boozy red wine flavor accompanied with a strong warmth that lingers.

Bottle @ home. Thanks, Jake. Just about black in color with no head. Super vinous nose. Almost Cabernet-like, awesome oak character. Mild chocolate, some decent roasted malt, and a hint of vanilla. Great charred oak as well. Flavor is very vinous, too. Syrah, Cabernet, and some grape juice. Good charred wood and lots of oak. Nice tannins. Mild vanilla and a pleasant grape acidity. Awesome.

Bottle (750 ml). Black with a small brown head and little to no lacing. Aroma is softer on alcohol than most other Black Tuesday version. There’s a bunch of cherries along alcohol (of course), roasted malt, grapes, winey notes, vanilla and oak. The taste begin with grapes along light acidity and is followed by the Black Tuesday usual flavor of roasted malt, vanilla before ending with alcohol warming and winey feeling. Full bodied. Moderate carbonation. Mouthfeel is a tad vinous. Warming finish, but not too boozy. Certainly one of my favorite version of Black Tuesday and probably the most "drinkable". Balance is good considering the components. There’s some cohesion in there. Tasty.

Hoarders Society 2013 - thanks for sharing Huhzubendah! Pours a dark brown/reddish wine/purple color with deep shades of red when backlit. Headless, no lacing. Aroma is grape must, oak, vanilla, sherry and booze. Flavor is overall sweet yet complex: grape intensity upfront, this beer almost drinks like a red wine. Chocolate, oak, a peaty/scotch quality that adds more intensity. Having an ounce or two of this is delicious, but seems to be hard work.

Hoarders Society 2013 bottle split with Paul. The beer is a shade lighter than Black Tuesday, Chocolate Rain. Dark brown with hints of crimson and ruby when held to the light. Aromas of big roast, booze, red wine, chocolate. The wine grapes really come through in the flavor, adding fruity sweetness. Lots of alcohol heat in the flavor and finish, but as certain amount of that is to be expected. Oak and roast with grape juice. A solid beer, but not as easy to drink as the aforementioned stouts. Best shared several (not two) ways.

Pitch black amber hues. Mild head, fades fast. Charcoal nose chocolate and fruit punch and juicy figs. Taste is pretty boozy. Lots of chocolate, smoked peet malt. Obvious tannic wine note sweet but not sure if it’s the beer or wine that’s adding the sweet. Chocolate finish. Mmmmm

hopdog (9391) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 27, 2014
750ml bottle. Poured a black color with a small sized off white head. Chocolates, grapes/vinous, roast, wood, vanilla, and dark fruity. Found this to be way too drinkable and could drink this over the regular Black Tuesday any day.

Ataraxia (401) - Massachusetts, USA - MAY 16, 2014
Purple tinged black, beige lacing. Grape must, berries, hints of chocolate, and wood. Complex mix of fruity sweetness and vinous barrel character. Smooth, lightly carbed, full bodied. Dry, boozy finish.

(750ml bottle) deep purple, fine tan bubbles. Wine grapes, Black Tuesday base, sweet, raisiny, chocolaty. Taste of wine, chocolaty, sweet, almost cloying. Tired of drinking it after a while but a unique beer.
